Gowdy Says IRS Has ‘No Idea’ Whether Lerner Engaged in Criminal Wrongdoing

Former prosecutor and South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy relentlessly questioned whether the IRS had mishandled or destroyed evidence in what potentially could be a criminal case during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Monday.

“How would you know what elements of the crime existed?” he demanded of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “You don’t even know what statutes are in play. You don’t have any idea.”
